Real question here.. Not working with "real" comms for a while I was very suprised to hear on BFBS reports that BOWMAN cannot operate in Iraq as " Here its 42 degrees and the VHF can only reach x Kms but in Canada "where it is colder?" it can reach XXXXkms" So from this we can assume that at the moment BOWMAN cannot work in hot places. ???? Please can someone in the know tell me the truth.. This is getting more and more like "They gave us the wrong crystals" cerca A Bridge to Far. Now a "Digital Battlefield Communications system a bit too hot!."
